Do I have to attend the offices of the solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Southville so that I can pop in to their offices if required.
Most conveyancing panel lawyers for banks undertake all of the work via the post, internet or over phone calls. This means that they can undertake the conveyancing transaction regardless of where you live in England or Wales. However you can see if you have the option of going to the offices of your conveyancing lawyer if you prefer.
The deeds to our home can not be found. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Southville 4 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?
As long as the title is registered the information relating to your proprietorship will be retained by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to perform a search at the Land Registry, find your property and secure up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for twenty pounds.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Southville I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Southville for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
Given that I am about to part with 450k on a terraced house in Southville I wish to have a conversation with the conveyancer concerning thetransaction in advance of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

I am one month into a leasehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the high street agent to do our conveyancing in Southville. We are not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new solicitors?
They would need to be very poor in order to consider diss instructing them. Has your mortgage been issued? If so you will need to advise them of the new contact details and have the offer are issued to the new lawyers.
